Beth -
I'm so sorry for you loss. You may not remember me, but we went to Milton together. We have a home on St. Simons too, so I've enjoyed seeing all your happy posts.

Prayers to you.

Greg, my good friend, you will be missed. I will always remember my visits to St. Simons. From my arrival at, as I always called you to joke, "Brunswick International Airport - Gate 1" to the moment I flew out, you were the best host. You, Beth and I had a lot of great memories and I will cherish every minute.

I will miss my text helping me cheer on Ole Miss.

Thanks for the great friendship.
